In this chapter, degradation mechanisms of optical materials, used in the light-emitting diode (LED)-based products, are explained. This chapter aims at describing the service conditions on the degradation mechanisms of different organic optical materials in LEDs which lead to the color shift of the light output. The contributions of different degradation mechanisms of optical and package materials in LED-based products to color shift are thoroughly explained.
